The north Railroad Avenue Trail bridge crossing Whatcom Creek between York and Ellis Streets caught fire on Friday, November 23, 2012. The bridge was originally part of a railway crossing running north from York to Ohio Streets.
The old creosote-treated structure was removed and replaced with a new, clear-span bridge that is more environmentally friendly.
Beyond Greenway, Greenway 3 Levy and Transportation Benefit District
Construction is near completion and the bridge is scheduled to reopen on or before September 25, 2014.
More information about the fire is available in a City news release.
